John Hamblin was an Australian actor who died on September 21.
Look up his accomplishments. They represent a great range on both stage and television.
Notably he performed on Australia’ Play School, a long-running children’s tv show on our public broadcaster, the ABC.
His sense of humour was evident in his work, providing much entertainment for those outside the target age-range of the show while never condescending to the pre-schoolers at whom the show was aimed.

While it lasts on YouTube, take 6 minutes to enjoy his largely ad-libbed tale about a saucepan (pot) that was missing its lid. The video picks up partway in, but you’ll get the idea.
